Anyone who runs for Allie will be given a special gift, and the top three overall in each race will be given a special award.

Run for Allie
On August 24, 2009, 15-year-old Allie Castner was tragically struck and killed by a car as she was crossing the street in her hometown, Marblehead, Massachusetts. Allie touched and enriched so many lives. It is through the Allie Castner Scholarship Fund that Allie will live on, providing other young high school students with the opportunity to benefit while representing the honor, integrity and purpose with which Allie celebrated each and every day: Loving, Living & Learning. .
Parking on Race Day
There are some parking spots along the roads at Bentley School - but those are limited. We are encouraging runner's and spectators to park at Salem Willows down the road where there is plenty of parking. That is only a 1/2 Mile down the road from Bentley School. The Salem Trolley Co. has graciously offered to provide transportation for runners in the morning.
The course is going to be one of the best around! We will start down by Salem Willows and follow Rt. 114 into Marblehead. The turn around will be the entrance into Devereux Beach on the beautiful Marblehead Neck. Back down through historic Salem, Derby Street and back to the Willows to finish. The only big hill is entering into Marblehead, there are a few other hills on the course but nothing major. There will be plenty of volunteers and police keeping the runners safe. One loop is 10miles.
